Purchases firm from parent company; planning begun for next phase of companyÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s growth
BETHEL, Connecticut, September 16, 2004 ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â‚¬Â Web.com, a leading Web hosting and services provider, announced today that the companyÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s CEO, Will Pemble, has purchased the firm from its parent company, Web Services Co. of Redondo Beach, California. The amicable transfer of ownership allows Web.com to concentrate on streamlining business processes and expanding its Web services portfolio to meet the needs of an ever changing market.
Web Services Co. provided Web.com with financing, human-resources support and legal service; Pemble has run the successful business from its Connecticut headquarters since he became CEO in 1999.
When asked why he decided to purchase the internet firm Pemble states, ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œSince I took this job in 1999, Web.com has been a labor of love. I’m thrilled with the opportunity to run the company independently along with a team that is the core of our success story. My best – and perhaps only – skill is the ability to surround myself with talented and motivated people. All day, every day, they make it look easy.”
Pemble was asked about new offerings in the pipeline, ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œWe’ve got a few cool deals cooking that will be of tremendous value to our ever-growing customer base. Among the upcoming changes are all-new Reseller and Affiliate programs, and an expansion of our Domain Registration service to provide unprecedented levels of service and functionality.”
Having led three previous Internet companies through every phase of a successful business lifecycle, Will Pemble draws on two decades of diverse experience with Internet and eBusiness development, achieving rapid success through innovative business strategies.
Serving over 300,000 customers since 1996, Web.com has emerged as a dominant player in the Web services industry, continuously ranking among the Top 20 domain name registrars and winning several top honors in the Web hosting industry.
